Benanti will play Shelby Shackelford, the dynamic new Senior VP of Acquisitions at Symphony Health Systems, a health care company trying to buy Hamptons Heritage Hospital. An out-of-towner, Shelby comes to the Hamptons and brings an unexpected vision for the hospital — one that may mean new competition for HankMed.
Benanti joins previously announced guest stars including American Horror Storyvet Frances Conroy and Smallville's Callum Blue. In addition to her starring role on NBC's Go On as group therapy leader Lauren, the Tony award winner is known for her recurring role on Law & Order: SVU as Amaro's estranged wife.
The new season of Royal Pains premieres on Wednesday, June 12 at 9/8c on USA. Are you excited to see Benanti head to the Hamptons? Do you think sparks will fly between her and Hank? Sound off below!
